I'd like to hear my options, so I could weigh them, what do you say?
Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?

Thanks for a great story and an amazing full cast reading!

Sadly, the whispering was completely inaudible for me. Fun idea and really made things creepy... except that I have no idea what was whispered.

With headphones I was able to discern the whispering alright, but I agree it was a bit tough. There's always the website post itself with the full story text to help you understand what's said!

Great story that keeps you hooked, especially with all the amazing voice acting! I agree with the whispers though: hard to hear them, even with headphones 100%.

My only issue with this is the climax. Or the lack of it. I understand that we should expect the party to be something like that recording, but I still would've loved listening to the actual thing.

I just wanna go pro before AI takes over and the bot dogs from Boston Dynamics kill us all.
